**WARNING**  Graphic content to follow, and then a beautiful picture post on a baby shower and a birthday :)!
One summer when I was working at camp as a counselor I was walking out of the dining hall with a camper and a co-counselor and the camper got all poltergeist and throws up mid stride, and mid stride I turn around and walk away.  I know I was being a terrible counselor, but all things throw up make me want to die.  I just can't handle it, I can't handle hearing about it, seeing it, smelling it, you get the idea.  In college my friend Steve would make motions like he was about to lose his cookies and I would dry heave and about start crying.  I am sure you are wondering why I would mention this on such a beautiful post that is about to follow but, I share this with because ever since  I knew I was going to have a baby I was always scared of the day that this may happen to BellaRose.  I would have no idea how I would be able to handle this......sickness.  I am a terrible wife to Worth when he is "sick".  I just ask from a very far distance if he is okay.  Satan took over Worth's stomach this week.  It has been bad, but we have been questioning whether it was the bug or something he ate.  I believe I found out this afternoon with BellaRose that it was a bug.  As I had BellaRose in the tub changing an explosive diaper with the contents strewn about me and BellaRose I realized that as a mother I am capable of much more when the child is mine.  I am not sure that I could handle it if the explosion came from her mouth, but a diaper I can handle.  I am praying that the sweet baby Jesus beats out this Satan bug on our Sweet Girl.  
***Graphic contents over***


Our nephew Noah celebrated his 9th birthday this past week.  We had the chance to surround him with love on Thursday.  Noah is such a sweet boy.  He is so caring of his younger siblings and BellaRose just adores him.  The sweetest thing about Noah is that he lets BellaRose sit in his lap and climb all over him.  I can't believe he is already 9!  Jennifer was about to have him when Worth and I started dating!  I know I say this so often, but time really does fly.  Before we know BellaRose will be 9.  Oh goodness, I can't even think about that.


We also had the great honor to throw Niki and sweet baby Julia a baby shower.  Julia is now officially equipped to enter the world.  Niki is such a beautiful pregnant lady too!  Thank you Niki for letting us do this for you!  You are so gracious.  Check out Annie's beautiful pottery centerpiece that they flowers are in.  This too can be yours for the low low rate of.........

I'm so glad you took pictures of the shower they are great! It was a fun one!
I knew that you had a fear of BellaRose throwing up but I did not know this was a true phobia, way to be a good sport hearing all my throw-up tales from pregnancy! I'm so sorry she is feeling yucky , I hope it stays south and then heads out for good!

What a beautiful shower, LOVE your photos.
I think you are handling this like a champ. I hope she feels better soon. FYI-JP is the same (if not worse) with throw up or poop. He cracks me up because he will clean it up but literally gags the entire time. It doesn't matter if he smells it, sees it, or hears it,his reaction is always the same.

What a beautiful shower....and poor BR... I hope she...and Worth...start feeling better soon! Why didn't you ask me to make girl things for the shower.... I love baby girl things!!!!!!!!!!!

Such an entertaining post!

Shower looked beautiful.

It sounds like the stomach bug is all over the place right now. I hope you guys are over and rid of it now.

Yeah, puke is so gross.

Niki said...

That shower was absolutely perfect. And your pictures are amazing (as I've probably told you 5 times already)! I feel like I should have paid you to cover it for me.
Noah's birthday looks like fun and that cake looks yummy.
Poor little Bella Rose, I hope it is a quick one. I didn't realize Worth was sick all week!

Tripp, Jack, Charlotte said...

First thing's first...your friend Niki looked GORGEOUS! I wish I could look that good!

You mean to tell me you have NEVER had to clean up throw up?!?! Consider yourself one lucky girl and count your blessings. I hate throw up probably as much if not more than you! BUT let me tell you...the more they throw up the more bearable it becomes! And you're right...if they're yours, it'll surprise you what they can do! Just picture it...last year Tripp and Jack throwing up, TJ throwing up and then I get it. Talk about pure Hell.
I hope everyone in your family feels 100% very soon!!!

i hope sweet girl feels better soon. we have been dealing with TWO puking babies since three this afternoon, AND IT IS STILL GOING!!! it's not pretty here in chapel hill, lemme tell ya! it really is shocking, however, how bearable the ickiness becomes after a while.

Jim said...

Our Rose is now 9, who would have thought time flew so fast.
I am on your side...with even thinking about....TU..

Yuk.

KatieKate said...

Such great photos...

but I'll tell you what I told Shanna: moms are super human when it comes to their kid and puke. I don't understand it... but it's a very good thing.

Curt is like you... the 1 time I puke in our marriage and he runs outside to gag. Nevermind that I'm dying...

oh well :)

Courtney said...

I'm so there with you on the throw up... I just don't know what I'm going to do.. I practically gag when I'm picking up the cats! It's gross!!! I hope Paul can handle our kids cause I don't think I'll be able to either!!

Your shower pictures are really good too!! Thanks for sharing those!

Steve used to make this wretched sound every time he brushed his teeth...sounded like a combination of death and well, like he was going to toss everywhere...all that to say of was horrible and I'm with u on the sickness thing-piper usually handles it.

Sunday - what a great post. I'm so sorry that your sweet family has been so sick. ~ The pictures from Niki's shower are great. Look at all those gifts!

Annie Singletary said...

so sad but I'm sorry that I laughed at this post. I think it's so funny how you used to get when Steve would make that sound and then the camper thing, that made me die.
you are too funny.
Glad you guys are better, I mean better be cause I've got your girl right here in my lap.
your pictures from the shower were great, painted the beautiful picture that it was.

Hi Sunday! Hope you don't mind that I've been checking out your blog. Margaret mentioned it, as I too am blogging a bit these days. BR is gorgeous and I love your stories. Hope to see you again soon. I imagine I will see you sometime in the next three weeks or so, when Beckett decides to join us. Until then...
